The Interview will eventually be released — but Sony doesn’t know how just yet.
Sony lawyer David Boies went on Meet the Press Sunday morning to discuss Sony’s decision to pull the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy out of theaters. “Sony has been fighting to get this picture distributed,” he said. “It will be distributed. How it’s going to be distributed, I don’t think anybody knows quite yet. But it’s going to be distributed.”
Sony delayed the release of The Interview, which was set to open Christmas day, as a result of threats from hackers. Although Sony initially told EW they have “no further release plans” for the film, they later said it is still their “hope that anyone who wants to see this movie will get the opportunity to do so.” However, according to CEO Michael Lynton, as of now, no major VOD distributor “is willing to distribute this movie.”
